jT Yesterday at 0:S0 a. m. the Wheeling
i teachers' institute was called to order
by Superintendent of Sclioola W. 11.
[. Anderson. The "Battle Hymn of the
' Republic" was sun* under the leader|
ship of Mlis Lucy Robinson, with MIm
Little Bickerton at the piano.
Rev. Dr. Sooy, pastor of the Fourth
; street M. B. church, offered an appropriate
I Superintendent W. H. Anderson made
some very appropriate remarks, after
which Dr. J. P. Gordy was Introduced
riuid gave an earnest and exhaustive
talk on "The Mind and Its Operations."
He especially called attention to the fact
that all education Is not moral education.
Intellectual education la one
thing, and a moral education is another.
It will not do ior the teacher to Imagine.
tifat ail he has to do is to educate
the intellect and that the moral nature
will take care of Itself. This -Js one of
the very greatest mistakes In our education.
The moral nature must have
sneclai train! nc.

}. gave an introductory, taking for his
subject "The Air." He had expected to
& have with him some liquid air, but
found at the last moment that.the parSi,"
ties who were to furnish it were not
able to do so. He first spoke of the syra- .
j'; tools used in chemistry.' The language

; ' A recess of ten minutes was taken,
after which Miss Lucy B, Chapman, dl
| rector of drawing of the public schools <
rv _ o! Jollet, Illinois, was introduced. She
was enthusiastically received, as the remembrance
of her work last year ia
still freah in the minds of all. She out
lined the work she proposes to do during
the week and asked all teachers to
i come prepared for work. Thoae~who do
j$ the work will be much more impressed *
I-.,, than will those who merely see the work i
- done. She interspersed her talk with
quite a number of little storic* of the
& kind she gives to the children to Interim'
eat them in the subject of drawing.
y . She closed by placing on the blackboard
| a beautiful drawing.

f*' AFTERNOON SESSION.
tv Promptly at 1:30 the roll was called,
? after which the "Song of the Swallows"
was sung by the members of the lnstl.
Profc Vlanpled- then occupied some
time in giving some practical experiments.
The professor occupies the chair
in Bethany college formerly occupied by
Trot Dalbear, the Inventor of the DoiH
bear-telephone, and whose reputation as
a scientist is world wide. Mr. Vlanpled

In* concerning oxygen: Without It, animal
life could not exist. If the air were
pure oxygen we would live a week in
j? about twenty minutes. Everything
would be consumed rfpontaneoualy. If
there were no oxygen, I. e., If the air
were pure nitrogen, then we would
$? drown Just as surely as we would In
Aftef the talk. "America" was sung,
L'' a recess of ten minutes was taken, then
| Dr. Gordy spoke on the subject of
"American <Hlstory." He commenced
fcla talk by asking the question, "Should
the President and the senate of the
United States act on questions on which
lj' the constitution gives them power to
ij-:. act without consulting the people?"
About four-nrtns or tne memoers 01 me

speaker said that the constitution fives
J the people two things to do; one was to
H elect representatives and presidential
rv electors. The senators are not elected
by the people, nor are the members of
the supreme court. So the people have
very little to do directly with the af- ,
fairs of our government. ]

the support of all voters who desire

In taking this action the Republican I

jo a stronger demand for the establlshnenti

lectured that "the improved agricultural,

The following from- tlio "Washington
Post (Ind.) Is timely In view of the partisan
effort to prejudice the country 1
against President McKlnJey which is (
being made by a few Democratic pa>- I;
The Chicago Chronicle Is> one of a '
number of Democratic papers which )
prefer to run the state and congrcssion- ,
al campaigns on the strength of an in- t
discriminate onslaught on t'he war do- i
par&ment rather than on acy clearly
defined, issue. Of course there is or can '
be little of justice In such campaigning, ?
for it accepts and uses a? established)
truths a huge and grow ing man of accusatlons
and carefully avoids any attempt
to reparati- the true from the 1
false. But even a campaign of calufainy '
does not necessarily require those who
prefer to wage it to condemn the con- J
stltution of the Unit??d States and eulogize
the British plnn of government. A '
traveling En gunman, in unicago, ; takes
occasion to remark t'hat it Mir- | ?
prised him greatly "to see Secretary "t I
War Alger retain his portfo!io so long | i
In the midst of such a gerx:ral storm of <
Indignation-," because "with us such a
scandal would throw* the party resjwmsible
out of power within a week. "With
you the custom* arc different, but it
seems to me that Alger ought to re
sign out of deference to his party. If
he does not his party should take steps
to force him to relinquish his portfolio.
It is very poor politics, to say the least, ,
to keep him in power."
The' Chronicle accepts thin very ;
"fresh" deliverance of Gospel truth, and
appears to regret that in this unfortunate
country there is no similar plan for
getting a cabinet officer out when popular
opinion assails him. Hut tills Ecftr- <
llsh critic goeu too far whfen he says ]
that "such a scandal" would throw an ,
English ministry out within a week, It ;
requires an adverse vote in the house of i
commons to do that. And 'where is (

mons would turn agalnm a ministry
that had had Just brought a foreign
war to a magnificent end? When did
the common* punish a ministry or party
for such victories us have marked
this war? Instead of condemning and
voting out the party In control at such
a time, the English commons would b?
devising fresh honors for the heroes,
and the English people would believs
that the party had gained a new and
strong hold on popular contldence. That,
In spite of the contrary opinion of this
English critic. Is the British way.
The mnirnlflcencc of our victory In tha

ended when Spain asked for a ce?Batlon
of hostilities, leaving her Weft

shame Its political brethren( when, la
Its admiration of the English plan. It
KO'js so far as to assert ihat"there muit

That Is so outrageous, so contemptible,
so unpatriotic, so everything conrlfninnblo
that It must miss Its aim.
The people of the United States respect

men of all parties and sections. If tbe
Chronicle really admires the English
system of government and has a grudpe
igainst the framera of our plan, we do
not blame It for saying so. But when
[it such a time as this it lets Its admlratlon
for the British way of governing
and its esteem for an ill-informed and

?arry it to the length of an abominable
assault on the President, It goes further
